  5. Description:A true confession poem about the two pen names that I write under, tnderhrt23 and No-Clue, on Hubpages.
  6. MCN:C379J-4XLHX-PK1WX

I meant no grand deception...
that was never in the plan.
The goal was just discretion.
Yes, that's how it all began.

Two very different sides there are
to any given coin,
and when it comes to writing,
the two do not always conjoin.

At least that's how I saw it
when the idea did occur
to create a second pen name
to insure the first stayed pure.

So, this is how it happened,
that my evil twin and I,
Ms. tnderhrt and No_Clue
on Hubpages did, then, vie.

While true to name and nature,
more sentimental in her fare,
tnderhrt's more tender
and writes with lighter flair.

No_Clue is much more shadowed
sometimes dark and or sometimes dim,
she is my alter ego,
sometimes funny, sometimes grim.

Both reflect this writer,
two faces in the glass...
Ms. tnderhrt and No_Clue
Hope you'll think us not too crass!

I meant no grand deception...
that was never in the plan.
The goal was just discretion.
Yes, that's how it all began.

      I think you are grand Miss Marsha in no matter what literary alter ego you choose - a great writer like Vincent said is a great writer no matter what avenue you choose - and that great writer is you of course.

      Your support and loyalty to me is legendary and it's one reason why I continue to write because of wonderful friends and esteeed colleagues like yourself - and for knowing someone special like you I have been blessed here at the Hub. Sending you warm wishes and good energy from lake erie time ontario canada 3:09pm

      I can understand why you want to have to faces, I have often thought of doing the same myself. Now I can look forward to reading both sides of you.

      Tams R, I so relate...I have a few bizarre tales of my own that are true stories, and my journey has definitely made me who I am today, and today I am my best me. Thanks for your visit and great comment!

      I've often thought of having 2. I am strongly motivational on one side and yet my life so full of many things I need to get out is sad. I worry how the 2 combine under one name.

      I figured it this way though, one person many life experiences. It is who I am despite how unbelievable all these stories of mine may seem, they are all true and make me a better person.

      If people don't understand then I guess they just won't as I do not have the patience to break them into pieces.

      I admire your ability to keep them separate and your honesty in doing so.

      Faith Reaper, thank you so much! I was a little afraid people wouldn't be honest, some days I don't understand either but it sure has worked for me! From my perspective, tnderhrt is the spiritual, positive side of me, where No_Clue is the more, I don't know, troubled or wounded side, both sides of the same little brass coin...Anyway, thank you again. I will be interested to know how you perceive No_Clue's work.

      mary615, yes, I am one and the same, tnderhrt23 and No_Clue. I started on Hubpages as tnderhrt23. No_Clue came about maybe 8 months later. I write both. Sorry for the confuses me, sometimes...

      How honest, and I am glad you have your "True Confessions." Very clever indeed. Now I want to go over to the darkside - No Clue, and read up on her too. Wonder which one is a better writer? Ha. Voted up, awesome and interesting. We all have those deep, dark inner most thoughts that only He knows about, but I'm glad you express yours - you are truly unique. Faith Reaper
